Greig Johnson is a comedy writer, performer, musician and filmmaker. His comic creations include Belgian action star Lunge Dolphin, music production guru Woody Brown and northern poet Brian McMorley, and he has recently appeared in BBC Two’s The Mash Report and CBBC’s Class Dismissed. After growing up in Harrogate, Greig studied and then went onto teach graphic art and design in Leeds. At the same time, he was making short films and comedy sketches and when one caught the eye of comedian Matt Lucas, Greig’s career path started to shift. In this very funny interview, hear how Greig’s first comedy videos were made for just two of his friends, the sheer terror he felt the first time he performed his characters on stage, and why his biggest comedy inspiration may well be his Dad.
